from the ¡sᴉɥʇ-sǝlpuɐɥ-ʍou-ǝʇᴉs-ǝɥʇ dept.
So, after dealing with a bit of monkeying with the database, I'm pleased to announce that Soylent should (in theory) have support for UTF-8 starting immediately. Now obviously this isn't well tested, so this is your chance to break the site in two, consider the comments below to be "open season" so to speak. I know the comment preview has some issues with UTF-8 (and it only works at all in Plain Text or HTML modes)

For purposes of breakage, anything that breaks the site layout/Reply To/Parent/Moderate buttons, or breaks any comments beyond itself is considered bad. We need to stop those. If you can break it (which shouldn't be hard), you earn a cookie, and I'll get you in the CREDITS file as something awesome.

For comments that are just plain unreadable, moderation will take care of them, and that isn't considered a bug. So go forth and BREAK my minions! ()}:o)↺

    Alas, mirrored text (done by using ‮) doesn't seem to work, even if it does show up mirrored when pasted in the comment editbox.

    A character beyond what UNICODE restricts itself: &amp#x20FFFF; - shows like
    Something below the max limit, valid, but unassigned 𰀁 - shows like
    Something that's an invalid UNICODE character -  - shows like
    The REPLACEMENT CHARACTER i.e. � - shows like �

    Now, what the above will do inside the storage, I don't know, I'm just trying to go forth and BREAK those minions!

    (hmmm, the "preview" looks like they are totally kicked out, not replaced by the replacement character [wikipedia.org] - won't cry over the loss of it)
